officials saying they believe he can be tried in the united states safely and securely. we don't know if that's going to be in manhattan necessarily, but bill burton said yesterday that the president agrees with the attorney general's opinion in that in november he and others can be litigated successfully and securely in the united states of america just like the --s have, like richard reid. currently our federal jails hold hundreds of convicted terrorists and the president's opinion has not changed on that. what is notable here, if you go back and listen to the attorney general, eric holder's comments, back in november when he explained why manhattan, he said a number of things. he said it was a tough decision to make, could have been other locations, but it was a hardened area, he said, very secure. literally you can take terrorists, alleged terrorists from their jail cells to the courthouse under tunnels, that type of thing. but he also said what was equally important was that this is very symbolic for a lot of the victims of september 11th, the fact that this is happening in
